Recipe: Cinnamon Raisin Applesauce

It has recently come to my attention that some of you are not fans of applesauce.  Huge mistake, in my opinion because applesauce is delicious.  I’m not talking about the processed kind that you buy in a jar, but the applesauce you make at home.  Maybe it’s a texture thing for you and you don’t […]

Recipe: Ginger Toffee Pie

If you’ve never had it, Banoffee Pie is a rich, creamy decadent dessert.  It originated in England and is made as a pastry dessert with bananas, cream, and toffee (sweetened condensed milk aka dulce du leche).  We’re nearing the 40th birthday of Banoffee Pie and I thought a tribute to its deliciousness is in order.  Unfortunately […]

Recipe: Grilled Apricots with Sweet Mascarpone

This dessert is light and very easy to make.  It’s perfect for serving to a large group or for a quick snack.  Macerating fruit in a bit of sugar draws out its own juice so it can marinate before cooking.  The brown sugar adds an extra layer of flavor to the apricots, making them even […]

Recipe: Oversized Fortune Cookies

I first got into the idea of making fortune cookies because I was looking for a clever gift to deliver a message.  Subsequently, I decided these cookies were crispy, light, and fun to make.  I highly encourage you to write out some fortunes, though I’ll be honest, I have yet to find a way to […]

Recipe: Spiced Plum Compote

Use this recipe as a topping for yogurt, dessert, french toast, or enjoy it on its own! Plums come in a variety of colors (green, yellow, red, purple, blue-black, amber) and you could easily make this recipe with any of them.  There are about 100 varieties of plums available around the United States, and the […]

Recipe: Homemade Frozen Yogurt

New York City in the summer is amazing and brutal at the same time. The city never feels more alive, especially if you’re at Tasti-D, Pinkberry, 16 Handles, Red Mango, or any one of the hundreds of ice cream and gelato shops.  Instead of standing on line, make your own! The full fat version of […]

Recipe: Ginger Scented Blueberry Salad

Blueberries and peaches are in full summer swing right now!  Not only are they at their peak, but they’re at their cheapest for the year.  Everything is less expensive when it’s in season.  If you shop from a farmers’ market, there’s a good chance your peaches were picked yesterday.  Besides, blueberries are one of the […]

Recipe: Golden Macaroons

I think macaroons are delicious.  The best (and most fun) way to eat them is by dipping them in other things.  For example, you’ve probably had chocolate dipped macaroons.  Or white chocolate dipped macaroons.  I, personally, like macaroons with whipped cream and sprinkles.  Put I’ve also seen peanut butter mousse dipped macaroons, vanilla yogurt macaroons, and […]

Recipe: Mango Sorbet with Blueberry Sauce (it’s only 100 calories!)

It’s never too early in the summer (or spring) for a cold dessert! I discovered, by accident, that frozen fruit makes a quick and easy sorbet without added sugar or flavorings. This sorbet works for ANY frozen fruit – try it with peaches, pineapple, or berries! The blueberry sauce is even better when you get […]

Recipe: Sweet Forbidden Rice

Forbidden rice is a type of black rice that turns purple-ish when cooked.  A long, long time ago, in China, the only person allowed to eat this rice was the Emperor; it was forbidden to everyone else (hence the name).  This type of rice is often in eastern cultures for desserts, like pudding or porridge.  […]
